Though our server had no knowledge of gluten in their menu items, there were informed and caring staff people available. The menu was on an easy-to-use tablet. My food was delivered hot and delicious. Most importantly, I did not get sick.

Unless your getting the steak or ribs, there's nothing GF here. I also can't have dairy so way limited options. Was handed the binder, they could not answer whether there was any GF breador pasta.

Poor service at this location, and yes they brought out the gluten bible binder rather than a menu...

Good selection on the gf menu. Menu broken down by different allergies is helpful if your allergic to more than one thing.

I asked if they had a gf menu and I was handed the binder. It's difficult to read and figure out what is actually gf? Once the waitress came back to take our order I said I was really confused as what I could actually eat because I had celiac. She said well that's why we give you the binder . When it came around to take my order I decided to pass. All I wanted was a salad but I did not feel safe eating here. Come on Applebees you should have a gf menu!

This is more a criticism of the chain rather than this particular location, but I wish they'd print an actual gf menu rather than have the giant, difficult to navigate binder. That said, they do have a few appetizers that are gf. I had the nachos, and they were tasty and generously sized. Staff was friendly and attentive.

The menu has “GS” (gluten sensitive) next to the items that don’t have any gluten ingredients in them. When I asked my server if there were dedicated fryers or spaces for preparing gluten free foods she said no. I had the corn chips and queso which was good and then the riblets for my meal. Fries that came with meal were not in dedicated fryer, so I asked for just the riblets and was still charged for the fries. Probably won’t be back here as it was too risky as someone with celiac.

Manager was knowledgeable, but also gluten sensitive herself. (I called ahead). Staff was not knowledgeable but did mark that I had a gluten allergy on the menu. Limited food options but there were still some decent choices.

I'm an hour in and no rumbles. I will edit later if I did get hit.

My wife just found out she has Celiac so it’s been an adjustment to find places we all like that give her good options. I found Applebee’s menu online and you can select different allergens and it will show you what’s available for you to choose from. She had a steak, broccoli and baked potato and loved it. The kid menu was fun, they get to pick the main course a side and their drink. It was good for our family.

Advertising gluten sensitivity menu items, but when I went to order, was told they take NO precautions for allergy issues due to liability concerns. Won’t be back. I didn’t choose to have food allergies. It’s not hard to make a bit of an effort to protect me.

We took my celiac son in because they were said to have a GF menu. They told us they got rid of their separate fryer. They also couldn’t say if the meat was safe, even without buns. They seemed to have no idea about dealing with food allergies and the manager seemed annoyed that we were asking.
